in ohio. it's a choice -- either government should just sit by and let the market do its thing or government can come in and correct certain outcomes and prevent catastrophe. that's the kind of choice we face in this election. >> what obama is talking about on the trail, first of all, there's no second-term agenda. when he goes off the record with the "des moines register" last week. he gave out a second-term agenda which is nothing like he's been talking about on the trail. >> that's not true at all. >> the corporate tax rates. talking about weeding out immigration. talking about immigration reform, which he has not talked about much in public and a grand bargain with cutting spending $2.50 for every $1 of tax revenue. >> have you seen the proposal he put on the table? >> you want to talk about being factually accurate. it's factually inaccurate it say that governor romney was against the rescue of the auto industry. if you read his entire op-ed. you guys are journalists, i assume you believe that words are important.in and what he says in that op-ed is that he believed that t
as possible. >> i can promise you the federal government will work closely with the state and local officials and we will not quit until this is done. >> the president will try to avoid red tape and bureaucracy can helping states that were slammed by sandy and yesterday's yesterday was void of about tuesday's election which is something that depov gov christy appreciated . >> the president and i are big boys and business of politics and we are aware that the election is in six district attorneys and i asked him where he is campaign doing next . but most of the time we talked about the problems. >> governor christy is one of mitt romney's important surrogates and delivering the key note in the republican national convention two monthses ago. mitt romney is careful not to campaign too fely while people are in the east coast. as he made his closing argument. he made sure everyone in the event was thinking about everyone who is hurting. >> please go vote early and send a dollar extra to the red cross. for our folks that are in harm's way. >> today mitt romney will campaign in the state of virgini
government in the short term. >> yeah. >> right now people are just trying to deal with their immediate needs, moving in with neighbors, staying with friends. we have heard reports that some utility companies are talking about perhaps turning off water services, for example, because there could be contamination in the system. people are hunkering down and the work is just beginning. in this town, for example, the roads are covered with -- some places, several feet of sand. they're impassablimpassable. impossible to get in and out of some communities up and down the shoreline and in new jersey. again, to think of at this point of a lot of relief supplies arriving, people are hunkering down trying to deal with the near term right now. >> let me correct myself. it's congressman steve israel of new york saying he is in contact with fee many officials. needing more detail on the plan there. to your point, you have certain reaction with the individuals of point pleasant. it's a layer of response but nevertheless the president is landing at a critical time when i do think people want to hear as many
. appreciate it very much. nice to see you both. how the government should handle disasters like hurricane sandy which stossel says may upset you. earlying in -- early voting in the presidential election. ♪ ♪ ♪ we're lucky, it's not every day you find a companion as loyal as a subaru. love. it's what makes a subaru, a subaru. ♪ atmix of energies.ve the world needs a broader that's why we're supplying natural gas to generate cleaner electricity... that has around 50% fewer co2 emissions than coal. and it's also why, with our partner in brazil, shell is producing ethanol - a biofuel made from renewable sugarcane. >>a minute, mom! let's broaden the world's energy mix. let's go. >> bill: stossel matter segment tonight estimated damage caused between 30 and $50 billion. much of that will be picked up by the taxpayer. our pal john stossel says that is not good. he joins us now. so about 20 years ago, you know a little beach house, lavish beach house out on long island got swept away by a hurricane, right? >> right. gone. totally gone. i think we have pictures of that. do we have pictures
of the economy except for government employment. government employment again fell pretty significantly, but across services, even manufacturing has been having some pretty good job growth. and retail trade, so it was kind of across the board for this month. overall, what you have seen is the health sector, if you say over the last two years, where have the jobs been growing? they haven't been really in anything touching on the housing market. so real estate, construction, those things haven't done well. but a lot of services, a lot of export related, and a lot of manufacturing have been kind of the sectors leading it. >> so the president is promising in the next four years if elected he will create jobs in the millions. mitt romney is promising if elected he'll create 12 million jobs. but at the same time, romney underscoring government isn't the one that creates jobs. how does either one deliver on the promise of creating millions of jobs? >> well, you know, the first thing to note is when an economy is growing, even at a moderate pace, it's going to generate a lot of jobs. i think if
that big government is necessary. you've got an obama e-mail during the hurricane hey, you've got a phone, get obama's back. al gore's blaming global warning and bill clinton says electing romney is worse than hurricane sandy. what's wrong with your party? >> well, you built a case, i'll say that, mr. prosecutor. i will also say that, in fact, mitt romney during the campaign said that, you know, he would cut funding for fema, homeland security, the people that have come to the aid of those in new york, new jersey, those that have been hard hit. >> no. he said he would give it back to the states, juan. wait a minute. excuse me. there's a proposal here, if you look at the details of pages 94 , 96, the white house's see sequestration proposal includes cuts for fema for $900 million if you want to get into tit for tat here. >> i'm saying not only did he said he would accepted it back to the states, he said ideally it would be up to private enterprise. >> wait a minute. in his own sequestration, $900 million in cuts for fema. let's not get into this. i think both guys are doing what they're su
former congressman, you know him, vin webber says fiscal and government restraint is the key. listen to what he said. >> we're not seeing any element of that from this administration. no fiscal restraint. only higher taxes on capital as well as on labor. that's a bad mix. >> so that's the answer that the republicans are putting forward. fiscal and government restraint will kick up your gdp growth to the extent you'll create more jobs. ken, do you buy that? >> well, i -- looks to me like their plan is to cut taxes. you hope you get really fast growth. i think the deficit would go up a lot for a while. we would get growth. but i'm not sure it would be anything like we saw under reagan. there is so much debt out there. there is so many headwinds. there's europe, the a administration would do less on cutting taxes if at all and probably raise spending. that's really where the difference is between the two. one of them wants a smaller government. one of them sees the government doing more things. that's a big difference. >> you know more than i do. quick answer, do you think either of the
by the u.s. government. one official told cbs news tonight, the csg is the one group that is supposed to know what resources every agency has. now, they know of multiple options and had the ability to coordinate counter-terrorism assets across all the agencies. they were not allowed to do their job. they were not called upon. meanwhile, the house oversight committee sent a letter to the secretary of state, hillary clinton, asking about documents that indicate that people affiliated with the libyan government may have been involved in the attack. joiningous this breaking news, former new york city mayor, rudy guiliani. there is a likelihood that power is not going to be back on in new york until... some estimates, november 11 or beyond. there is no heat. there is no gas. people are dumpster diving for food. it was all over the drudge report. the president goes for a photo-op. he's gone. there is no help coming in here at all. it is four days into this. i mean, i really believe this is now -- this is a disaster out there. >> it is a disaster. particularly for the people in breezy point
to our partners in the federal governme government. president obama has been on top of this situation and very informed. i've spoken to him several times myself. he wants to know what new york needs. he has been all over. fema has been fantastic. and responsive and working these types of situations. i have total respect for the job that fema is doing. i want to thank them very much as well as the army corps of engineers. as you all know, one of the major problems still is the water in the tunnels, the water has receded, so when you drive around, it looks like most of the water is gone, but the water filled the subway tunnels in many places, fill the brooklyn battery tunnel, and when the water fills the tunnels, that means con-edison has issues. much of con-ed's equipment was in the tunnels, so getting the water out of the tunnels probably the main -- one of the main orders of business right now. first a transportation update. as you know, the new york city buses are at full service today. thank you, mr. joe and your extraordinary team. there will be limited commuter rail service on me
romney, less taxes, less spending and less government and administration actually takes responsibility for both its excesses and its failures. now, the difference is between the two men on the ballot are very dramatic. without a doubt. only one of them is a leader. let's take a look at brand-new rnc video. >> what is the essential qualities of a leader. >> the leader has an built to see where things are headed before people in genesee it. that vision is not just skill and brilliance but even more their life experience. >> we need to take back america. it's up to you guys. you can make a difference. >> now is the moment where we need to stand up and say, i make my destiny. we deserve better. my children deserve better. my family deserves better. my country deserves better. >> how we're going to restore economic freedom. >> can you win this thing? >> i'm going to win it. >> sean: it's important not to forget what four years of obama's policies have gotten us. economy is joke and we are laughed around the world. all this humor is not set sitting well you the american people. according to
the cooperation of the libyan government. >> bill: that is the same answer the president has given for weeks. nothing new. instead of citing some inconsistencies from the administration about the libyan attack, mr. williams dropped the subject. totally dropped it after one misleading question. going on to the bogus women's health issue. mr. williams implied that american intelligence stands behind the theory that the libyan attack was, quote: spontaneous. that is not a fact. but was presented as such by brian williams. now, talking points is not sniping at either the president nor mr. williams. but this is one big mess. and the national media is not demanding answers nor did governor romney during the foreign policy debate. by the way, despite that interview with mr. obama, the factor at 8:00 last night beat the nbc program rock center in total audience, which is kind of amazing. getting back to libya. my view is this: muslim terrorists were tracking ambassador stevens. they had heavy weapons at the ready. and saw an opening to attack in benghazi. there is nothing spontaneous about that. th
government. the government will do a number of things like building the pipeline, allowing much more drilling and exploration on federal lands. we can accelerate this huge shift in the energy economy of the world that we're seeing is making predictions that the united states and north america could become the saudi arabia of oil in the near future. so this is achievable. we have to have a change in policy and a change in presidents. >> okay. so one of the key legs of that stool is taxes as you said. >> right. >> governor romney saying he'll cut everybody's marginal tax rate across the board by 20%. that's an estimated $5 trillion in cuts but he says his plan is revenue neutral and will protect the middle class from tax increases. here's the question about the revenue neutrality, again you're referring to your time under president reagan and i was talking to bob rice, referring to his time under president clinton. the job growth under both of those presidents, the big area times of job growth where we created more than 12 million jobs over four years happened with economic growth greater than
-atlantic coming in steadily and staying there. that's why we're advising people and government officials are advising people to clear out the leaves in the storm drains. this will create flooding problems. speaking of which, storm surge at the time of high tide, not just your typical flood, can build in especially in the areas in here. we have the inlets. this is where it gets the most dangerous. that water funnels in and piles high. storm surge could be up to eight feet where it hits, new york city. we have to talk about tropical storm sandy and talk about snow. this storm has that interesting dimension where it gets an extra burst of energy coming from this. low pressure from the west is going to trigger cold air, and look at these snowfall totals. it's not winter yet, but it will feel that way in the mountains of west virginia. we could see our computer models predi predicting a foot or more of snow. sandy is going to affect millions in so many ways over some of the most populated cities in the united states. you see the snowfall that we're expecting here at the different levels of el
government. there have been 92 reported deaths related to this storm in the united states. the department of energy says more than 4 million customers still have no power. nearly 2 million of those households are in the state of new jersey. utility workers are coming in from all over. exactly from 12 states. they are headed to new jersey to assist in repairs. the national guard is increasing its response to the storm. reinforcements were sent to new york and new jersey to double the recovery efforts. now, while people are picking up the pieces of their shattered lives, the presidential campaign is back in full swing. if you want to know where this election will be decided, just watch where the candidates go. mitt romney made three campaign appearances in the state of virginia today. president obama jumped all over the place from wisconsin to nevada, to colorado. both candidates are making their closing arguments. interesting. a closing argument. what is mitt romney's closing argument? his latest incarnation is that he's the guy who reaches across the aisle? >> we have to stop the dividing
for the government providing services or assistance for people, and then he was saying that he was raised by a single mother, and that the government stepped in to bridge the gap in between jobs for her and the family, just as he said, the federal government is doing on the east coast. with the storm. and then he pledged some money to the red cross for that. so i think we may be seeing some kind of segue in that regard, certainly from someone introducing president obama. i have to tell you, about a minute or so ago, air force one touched down here in green bay, a pretty dramatic entrance, the crowd was excited to see the plane come in. and i do know from a campaign source that president obama off the top of his remarks he will give momentarily will talk about the storm but also getting back to campaign business and making the case for his re-election. we're certainly going to be hearing some politics as we heard before the storm, as well, ashleigh. >> and, you know, when you just sort of glossed over that, made a donation to the red cross, we should say that that packers' defense you're talking about
before tuesday's election. it's the october johns report from the government will be released in just about 90 mosts. both the obama campaign and the romney campaign hope the numbers will boost those economic arguments they've been making through this campaign and right into the final days of the race. we have complete coverage of what to expect this morning. let's begin with christine. she's got a look at what we could see. >> could see an unemployment rate that kicks up to about 7.9%. that's the forecast of economists surveyed by cnn money, soledad. 125,000 jobs added overall. for net new job creation. the important thing here is the trend. and it is the trend that has been so important to american families. american workers. and the two political campaigns, quite frankly. the president took office with unemployment rate at 7.8%, soledad. and then embarked on a massive stimulus plan and unemployment rate kept rising to 10%. but then started to come down. started to come down and is now back at 7.8%. and we got that number, of course, last month. and that was a big surprise overall.
, it really was two-fold. first of all, he wanted to pledge that the federal government would cut through red tape, cut through all the bureaucracy. he said there would be no excuses for inaction. and that federal agencies should really explore all options even leaning on the military if necessary to get the resources to where they need to get as quickly as possible. but secondly, what the president was also trying to reinforce yesterday was kind of uplifting the spirits of those hit by the storm. some of whom have lost everything saying that america is with you, america will help you get back on your feet. and he praised those who have already jumped in and taken action. >> during the darkness of the storm, i think we also saw what's brightest in america. i think all of us have honestly been shocked by the force of mother nature as we watch it on television. at the same time, we've also seen nurses at nyu hospital carrying fragile newborns to safety. we have seen incredibly brave firefighters in queens waist deep in water, battling infernos and rescuing people in boats. >> the reality is tha
we can do it better to prevent it the next time. >> i think not just government officials need to learn a lot, soledad you and i were both in zone "a," the evacuation zone and everyone talked about the worst case scenario. one of the things they said was flooding. we could see the subways flood. we could see power go out here. and that's what ended up happening. next time we get these warnings people are going to listen much more closely. >> it was interesting that governor cuomo said that we should think about maybe building a levee in around parts of manhattan. i mean he said that, sounds like a pretty good idea. i know that new orleans, when this happened, that they took some -- they redid everything. >> and remember that's new orleans consistently getting hammered by hurricanes and that's not really what we experience here. last year and this year -- >> and new orleans is low -- >> when so much is at stake here. i'm not suggesting that there's more at stake in new york than anywhere else. the stock exchange, the financial district. i mean, new york, parts of new york are th
a real problem. big picture, though. it's pretty clear that the state has emergency rules that govern natural disasters, the state needs to follow its own rule. new york has a rule that might be construed to say if you have an emergency affecting a threshold portion of the voting population in a particular area, you can extend the election one day at a time for up to 20 days or so. that's a rule they can lean on. and if anybody wants to take issue with that down the road they sort of take it up in the courts. >> that scares me the most. >> i know. >> can you imagine? i don't even want to imagine that. joe johns, thank you so much. >>> for the presidential candidates, the election seems to have taken a backseat to storm recovery. there's a reason why. we'll talk about the delegates' strategy involved in disaster politics. >>> your chance to talk back. will sandy change the election? who could play politics when so many have lost so much? governor chris christie, exhausted and relentlessly nonpartisan, today he will tour his state with president obama, a president he has praised for his
for the president good government is good politics right now and unfortunately for governor romney, you know, all he can do from now is stay out of the way. i think that's why you saw in that poll such a large percentage of people who answered don't know to that question. governor romney in the closing days of this campaign has to take a couple days and take a couple days of a breather and the president gets to be president, but, you know, that's kind of the way things happen. >> all right, we're going to invite you back during the 6:00 hour to dig deeper into the polls. richard socarides and ana navarro, thanks for joining us. john, back to you. >> every vote counts especially during a presidential election so asked some early voters to share their stories, the issues that matter most for them, who they voted for and why calling these voter graphs. first up is richard moore of orlando supporting president obama. he said he voted early because he's a poll clerk and can't vote on election day. his big issues, the economy, taxes and education and this is mitt romney voter deeni smith who gave us a pic
political situation in the sense it's so close to an election. if the federal government is deemed not to have prepared people properly for this and it becomes another mini katrina situation, it could be literally an election wrecker for the president. conversely, if he handles this very well and it is a huge storm, that can win him the election. it can be politically very important. >> let's be clear. the record is obvious to me, the president has -- we saw what happened in the past in katrina. the president has been very aggressive putting his own boots on the ground. he came through the state of new jersey when we had flooding and the like. so this president to me, he's already proven that point and i know, i know from my work in preparing today, that the federal government is ready for this challenge and they will meet it head-on and deal with the crisis and the aftermath. and i know it's a political issue but i really want to reaffirm to people because the biggest mistakes i've seen often in these storms, especially in the obama administration, has not necessarily been the fed
. sometimes people don't listen to their government, state and local officials when they tell them, they could be injured or killed and then the rescuers, the first responders have to put their lives at risk. checking back with all of them for the fox team coverage and extreme weather center. with janice dean. in the moments we have here, talk about the impact of the storm, also how it's impacting, of course, the political election coming up. >> eric: sure. it's the obvious question. a huge storm, master storm, both president obama and governor romney canceled a lot of their campaign events scheduled. rightly so. they should. president obama needs to stand up and show he is the president and take charge. governor romney can't look like he is politicizing a storm where a lot of people, a lot of damage, maybe a lot of people dying. can i point something out. president obama earlier today with his fema director went to podium and gave a nice speech. be careful, people lives are number one, the most important. there is a question toward the end of the speech, what will the impact be on the electio
with local and national governments to make sure we're providing services based on what is needed in the moment. >> from what you're seeing, do you feel the state and federal backup from the authorities has been sufficient? has the planning been right? >> absolutely. this isn't something that just happens once in a blue moon. we work with national government authorities on a regular basis to make sure there won't be hiccups in services and we know what services will be provided by what organizations. it's the best way for us to not duplicate services. it's the west wbest way to sit t the table together to know what the picture will look like, whether when we're in the middle of the response or a couple days when we start the recovery process. >> thank you for joining me. keep up the good work. >> thank you. >> breaking news. the u.s. death toll from sandy has risen to 12. 62-year-old man killed by a falling tree in pennsylvania. we'll have more after the break. ♪ ♪ ♪ we're lucky, it's not every day you find a companion as loyal as a subaru. love. it's what makes a subaru, a
of that because obviously when a disaster comes, even the people that say, you know, the government needs to get out of my business, this is the time when you really do need help from someone bigger than your neighbor. so it set off that argument as well. but i think the larger thing and one of the things that has taken up the breadth of the political discussion now is this going to affect the election in any way, will people be more likely to vote for president obama because he's looking presidential, are they less likely to vote for mitt romney because he, you know, said the fema money probably ought to go to the states and let them figure out how they want to spend money. so i think in the end, when you're looking at the states that have been affected here, particularly new jersey and new york, although obviously virginia also got hard hit as did maryland, the four of those states, they're all pretty solidly democratic, so i think in terms of what it might do to the states hard hit, i think you still are looking at three solidly democratic states and one tossup state, virginia. >> candy crowl
glimpse of what the federal government was doing to stay on top of this hurricane. again, the president promising that the federal government will help states in any way possible, as you know. so far, eight states have been declared states of emergency by this president, including the district of columbia. and that frees up some federal dollars to help them not only during the storm but also in the clean-up effort. >> dan, we're still a week away from a national election. this is not going away. what about the early voting? what about the efforts of people to do the in-person early voting state to state? >> reporter: well, obviously that is a concern. not only on the voting end of it but these are key battleground states that the president really wanted to be in in these final days before the election where the race is neck and neck. so you pointed out, the president was supposed to have this event in florida, pulled out of there. was supposed to have another event tonight in virginia over not only today and tomorrow. he was supposed to be in ohio, also in wisconsin and colorado. and he
